    Those events are concisely covered in The Declaration of Independence. That document uses a list of grievances that justify the revolution and Constitution. The preamble to the Constitution basically turns the list of grievances against King George into goals of The Declaration of Independence. That is: the goals stated in the Preamble are primarily intended to prevent the grievances listed in the Declaration of Independence from existing in the new government. It is a long list, but I will put down a few of them here, then refer you to the linked page below for the full transcript of The Declaration of Independence (Side note: I feel the Declaration of Independence is more important than the Constitution - it states the reasons for (or intent/spirit of) the Constitution which is the letter of the law. I feel strongly that the spirit of the law is superior to the letter - for any/all laws - in every case - anywhere): "He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries." "He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures." "For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:" "For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:" "For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:" "For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:" Of course those are generalizations of repetitive events. The Boston Massacre (1770) was one specific polarizing event (about standing army and murders by them). The Boston Tea Party (1773) was another (a protest against taxation without representation).
